Head Start: New Executive Director

Posted: Updated:

Billings Head Start appoints a new executive director at the Yellowstone Art Museum.

Jennifer Owen was selected to replace Kathy Kelker, who is stepping down from the position after six years.

Owen, a mother of a five-month-old boy, says Head Start hits close to home. As a new parent, she is increasingly determined to give every head start child the best possible opportunities.

"It comes right from the heart because I, as a mother, understand exactly that urgency to educate your kids, to give them everything, to help them grow and be their best," said Owen.

Owen says she is honored to be selected as executive director of an organization with such a huge impact in the community.
